Bug Garden Baby Shower Cake

Did this for a baby shower - nursery decor was green dragonflies, so I worked them in as best I could with a 'garden' theme cake. Bugs are fondant, dragonfly wings are gumpaste, flowers are gumpaste. Iced in buttercream. The 'baby' on top of the cake has dragonfly wings, and is sitting on top of open flower petals to look like it's 'hatching' from a flower. Many thanks to all the cakes on CC for inspiration, I especially copied some of boween's designs. Thanks for looking!
